The ship is like a diamond - everything was perfect and shiny!

We were the only Australians of 22 passengers, on our June trip through the Cyclades, but everyone spoke excellent or charming English and were very friendly.
The staff were sooooo helpful.
Nothing was too much trouble.
They were always happy and keen to make us happy.

Breakfast was at 8am but I was always welcome in the saloon at 7.15am as they were setting up.
I was doing travel planning on my laptop and preferred the firm, flat surface of the dining table.
I was offered fresh squeezed orange juice by Malvin and my espresso coffee by Taier.

The dining experience on board was amazing -with a varied menu which included exceptional Greek dishes.
I also loved the tuna tartare on avocado!
It was such fun to see Robert every night preparing his unique and delicious pasta station!
I loved his risotto with porcini mushrooms.

The on-off boarding for the tender transfer to shore was always safe and I felt very looked after by the sailing crew.

Robert (Tour Director) was always thinking of our welfare and was so kind and efficient in arranging an exclusive appointment in a hospital on the island of Ios.
My husband, John, needed a Medical Doctor to remove stitches on his head from a surgical procedure which had been done before we left Australia a week before. (It was a great success!)

The special touches like the bubbles on boarding on the first night, the pink Prosecco to toast the Santorini Sunset and the Photo Safari on the final night were amazing.(A photo safari is when the passengers are in the tender circling the ship when it is in full sail. A magnificent sight!)

This ship is like a diamond - everything was perfect and shiny!

I cannot recommend it more highly and the experience is in the top 10 of a lifetime of many unique travels.

I had seen a travel influencer post this trip last summer and thought wow I had never thought of traveling this way. Small ship, sailing through the Greek islands. It looked amazing. I was hesitant because I couldn't really find much information or reviews but I thought let's just go for it, and I booked on a whim. I have traveled on many different lines from Princess to Disney to Crystal. But I had never done a ship like this and didn't know what to expect. Running on Waves far exceeded my expectations and we had the trip of a lifetime. The boat is absolutely beautiful. Small enough that you feel like you're on someone's personal sailboat, but luxurious enough that your every need is taken care of. We had one of the larger main deck cabins and I definitely recommend that. We had plenty of space and it didn't feel like we were on such a small boat. The crew was fantastic. Robert, the hotel manager, is an absolute gem. He worked all day every day to make sure everyone was having a wonderful experience. The food was fresh and delicious and every evening Robert would cook up a specialty pasta for us, every bowl made with love. Our stops were islands I had previously never been to, with the exception of Santorini, but they were incredible to discover. Each island had its own beauty and each island was completely different. Our favorites were Syros and Milos. I would never have even thought to visit them without this itinerary. We had opportunities on this boat that you would never have on the big ships. Visiting these smaller islands, climbing the mast, and even jumping off the ship into the Aegean Sea on our final day. I could go on and on about Running on Waves. If you have the opportunity to book on this incredible ship please take it. You will not regret it.

Luxury sailing yacht. Best way too see the Greek isles!

My wife and I were looking for a smaller, relaxed cruise ship to see as many of the greek islands as possible. We did a random google search and found Running On Waves, which had great reviews everywhere we looked. We trusted the reviews and booked it. We’re glad we did! We’ve traveled all over the world and have a pretty discerning taste for service/accommodations and both the crew and the boat amazed us. Attentive, friendly service and the crew really felt like family by the end of the vacation. Our room was very spacious! We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the bathroom/shower. Great sailing themed room with comfortable beds. The housekeeping was on point as well. There was never a single time that our room was not serviced with fresh towels, soap, etc. We really can’t say enough about how great it was. Don’t think, just book!

Unforgettable experience

This cruise was absolutely amazing, the ship is magnificent, the crew is bending over backward to help you in any way possible, the food was delicious in every meal and for every taste.
So so worth it.

Trip of a lifetime!

Just returned from a seven day cruise with Running on Waves. It was truly amazing in every way. The ship is gorgeous, the staff exemplary, food amazing and activities wonderful. The shop held 47 passengers which allows for such a rich and wonderful experience. I absolutely recommend this cruise! I will never forget it!!!


Camille Wall Saturday, June 3, 2023

We had an amazing time on board this beautiful ship during the month of june. We were a big group, family of 15 (including teenage kids). The accommodations are superb, the food is delicious and the itinerary worked wonderful for us. Claudia and Robert were super attentive and flexible to our needs and they always found a way to make our experience incredible. From finding tours on the islands we visited, transportation and taking care of every little detail. Even though there were changes in our itinerary due to bad weather, Claudia, Robert and the crew found alternative islands we could visit that were equally charming and beautiful.
I would recommend this type of vacation in a heart beat and would love to come back! It would be great if Sicily or Croatia was included in the itinerary in the near future, we would definitely join in!

Just returned from Greece for a wonderful week on Running-on Waves. This was my 3rd Private Yacht Charter and also the best! The food was FANTASTIC and the service provided by the crew was impeccable! I am already in the process of rebooking this Yacht for another trip!

My experience with Running On Waves was a once in a lifetime experience in the summer of 2022. Throughout the time, we sailed to several Greek islands with a tremendous staff that was attentive and knowledgeable about each island we went to. Claudia was beyond cheerful, with a steady schedule that included all the details needed to maximize each day with. The crew was charming, helpful, easy to communicate with, and very present for anything the guests requested. To say that our stay on Running On Waves was enjoyed is an understatement. All of us as guests felt fortunate and lucky to be with such a magnificent ship. Not only did we each leave a piece of our hearts with Running On Waves and the staff, but we confidently look forward to returning.

My sister and I just returned from an amazing trip with Running on Waves. From the start, they had the guests in mind. The itinerary was adjusted due to rough seas to avoid discomfort. Instead of going to Kos and Patmos, we adjusted to go to Poros and Nafpilon instead.

The crew was amazing and attentive. Claudia and Robert truly made the trip amazing with their attention to detail. At every stop, Claudia had ideas for adventures or would set up excursions for us if we chose. The crew did everything they could to ensure our comfort. I was having some back issues from being on the plane and they found extra padding to add to my bed. The only thing I would want more is some shade on the upper deck. It is the best seat in the house but you can't escape the sun. There is a great shady spot on the back of the boat but because of the configuration there isn't a view from there (I know I'm getting very picky LOL) The food was amazing. Every day we had a full buffet of salad, bread, olives, cheeses, and fruit. There was always a delicious soup and 2 hot options. They accommodated dietary restrictions very well (pescatarian, gluten-free, and lactose-free all had plentiful options). I am still trying to understand how they got every piece of meat cooked to perfection and so tender.

The captain recognized that many on the ship were avid sailors and made sure to give us extra sailing time which was so spectacular. We missed Mykonos due to confusion with the port authority but that just means we will have to go back again. I am actually really hoping they might add a Croatia itinerary for 2024. if they do, we will be back with friends and family for sure.

A spectacular trip on Running on Waves with Claudia and Robert as well as the rest of the crew, special mention to Malvin, Alexi, Nicholas, Richard, and Albert. They made our stay on the ship feel like we were home while enjoying the beautiful Aegean Sea and all the beauty each island has to share! There is no better way to enjoy the Greek islands. We would tour in the mornings but chose to dine on board each evening other than one because no other place could match the delicious dinners on board specially prepared by the on board chef Rosalito. If I make it back to Europe I hope to have the pleasure of traveling on ROW again. Side note to Robert, I am still waiting on that lamb Bolognese recipe!

I was a bit leary about booking this cruise, since there were only a few reviews I could find online. I have previously cruised only on larger, six-star cruise ships (Crystal Cruises) so I was hesitant about being on such a small cruise, and worried it wouldn't be as luxurious of an experience as I was used to. It turned it to be more wonderful than I could have ever imagined for cruising the Greek Islands.

The benefits of being on a smaller yacht vs. a big cruise are endless.

-There is no waiting and lining up for tender boats. This maximizes your time on shore.

-You can find the cruise director to ask questions, get advice, help, etc. very easily.

-You can get to your room quickly and easily instead of having to walk 10+ minutes like you do on larger ships.

-You feel incredibly close to the sea, almost like a part of it, instead of feeling like you are on a moving skyscraper.


The staff onboard was incredibly helpful, kind, knowledgeable, and friendly. They are willing to go above and beyond to make you happy and soon start to feel like friends because you truly can get to to know and talk to them (if you take the time to.)


My other biggest worry was the food onboard - having come from six star cruises and being someone who very particular about food quality. Meals are served buffet style each night, so it makes dining very easy, and efficient. The food is not overly fancy, but everything was fresh, seasonal, very well cooked, and delicious! There was always a fish and meat, fresh vegetables, salad, some type of potato or pasta, a lovely display of fruits and cheese, and homemade dessert.


The boat was in immaculate condition, so though each area is indeed small, it looks brand new and is nicely outfitted. The rooms are small, but that is a product on being on a yacht. They all face outward so you always get natural light. I was supposed to be in the mini suite (cabin 5) but through a mix-up ended up in Cabin 24. This was basically on top of the engine, so the room was very loud and almost vibrated at night when the ship was going full steam. I would not recommend booking this cabin. We were moved to cabin 14, closer to the front of the ship, which was a much less noisy room. But you need to be prepared that the rooms on the tween deck are a bit loud. It's just the nature of being on a boat. If you can spring for a main deck cabin, I recommend it.


The boat is equipped with games, a screen for movies/karaoke. Since the boat is small, there is no entertainment brought on, but as long as you like talking to the person you are cruising with - this isn't a problem. The boat leaves port quite late each night, and we found after a dinner, and wine, we enjoyed just sitting on the top deck with a glass of wine, talking, watching the stars, and feeling the sea air. There is a speaker onboard for listening to music. I loved the lack of distraction and ability to just disconnect from the outside world. The boat has paddle boards, kayaks, and swimming platform for during the day. But this is of course all weather-permitting and the sea can be quite choppy because of the wind. Overall, I loved this experience. I often left like I was on my own private yacht, since you find yourself with many moments alone on board. I would come back again and again.

Wir waren eine Gruppe von 28 Gästen und wollten eigentlich die Kykladen befahren. Leider machte uns der Meltemi mit bis zu 7 Bf einen Strich durch die Rechnung. Die Crew zauberte aber in kurzer Zeit ein Alternativprogramm um den Peloponnes (Piräus – Pylos – Piräus) aus dem Hut das alle Gäste restlos begeisterte. Die Landausflüge waren hoch interessant und lockerten die Seereise entsprechend auf. An Bord wurden wir bei den Mahlzeiten ganz gross verwöhnt und immer wieder überrascht; insbesondere, nachdem man bei der Schiffsbesichtigung die kleine Küche besichtigt hatte! Ganze Nachmittage wurden im/am Wasser verbracht: Schwimmen, Kajakfahren, Stand-up Paddeln und die grosse Wasserrutsche vom Hauptdeck liessen die Zeit wie im Flug vergehen. Die Erholung fand man auf dem Sonnendeck oder bei einer Massage. Originalzitat mehrerer Gäste: «Eine Traumwoche»! Ein ganz grosses Dankeschön geht an unsere Reiseleiterin Claudia und den Hoteldirektor Robert. Sie haben uns alle Wünsche von den Augen abgelesen sowie viel Eigeninitiative an den Tag gelegt und so unseren Urlaub zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis gemacht. Ein weiterer Dank geht an die ganze Crew und ihren Kapitän Juri, die unauffällig all ihre vielfältigen Arbeiten top erfüllten. Und last but not least erwähne ich gerne die professionelle und transparente Abrechnung am Ende der Reise. Liebe «Running on Waves – Crew», gerne ein anderes Mal wieder!

I can't say that enough: the best service I ever had, the best crew, the best of the best. We did the South Aegean cruise with Running on Waves on Sep 2021, and we definitely will be going back. And I have to add that the destination isn't going to be the most important aspect of my booking any more. I'm very impressed with how qualified every single individual of this crew is. From attention to the smallest details that make each passenger unique to the level of food, wine list, cleanness which was 10/10. We stayed in the cabin 18 and several times a day things were cleaned, organized, towels changed and much more. The bar service was 24/7 if you wanted, the hotel and activities managers were on point at all times and the crew were nothing but amazing. If you are looking for a unique cruise experience where tailor made decisions are taken with your best interest in mind at all times, you found your ship. The ship is gorgeous, and you even have the opportunity of seeing it at full blast with the sails down in a show made just for you. I left the ship 7 days ago, and I'm missing last week more than I'm missing home.

A fantastic custom adventure through the Greek isles! The ship is one-of-a-kind, beautiful, comfortable. We enjoyed a real sailing experience with wonderful activities. First class service without being pretentious. Casual atmosphere, but still a custom luxury feel. We were able to be as active or relaxed as we wanted at any time. Claudia and Robert and the entire staff and crew were there to help us get the most our of vacation. Helpful and attentive in too many ways to mention. Food was fresh and extraordinarily delicious with plenty of healthy choices. Unique touches like a ship's tender available at any time we were in harbor and swimming and water sports directly from the ship. Tremendous memories made with a small group of fellow passengers, now friends, from around the globe!

Gregg Stapleton Tuesday, September 28, 2021

Running on Waves is a fantastic boat with a more than fastastic crew team. We did the Agean Cruise 2021 and felt that it was one of the best travel experiences of our live. Is like cruising in a private yacht, unique and beautiful, with the very best top service on board, kind, attentive and very professional, dedicated to make your hollidays memorable. We fully recommend. José and Maria João. Lisbon - Portugal.

Our family very much enjoyed our trip with running on waves. They were very accommodating and always had fun activities for us to take part in. By far the favorite being the swimming, water a slide, and tubing. Claudia and Robert made a trip for our family to remember. The food was better than any restaurant I’ve been to. The crew was always polite and working hard. Thank you so much Running on Waves!

Gabriella Grubb Monday, August 16, 2021

If you want to have a good rest and travel it's here. The yacht is very comfortable. The food is very good. Wonderful staff on the yacht.

Irina Usacheva Tuesday, November 5, 2019

If you are thinking about a top-class cruise, this is the one! Most pleasant staff, always smiling and genuinely caring for guests. All your needs are taken care of. Food is mind blowing, sea sports are widely available and on demand. Claudia and Robert are just simply extraordinary human beings, making your experience truly unforgettable. The boat is not only magnificent, but very comfortable and offers the opportunity to be on your own as well when needed.
An experience to be repeated!

Inma Montero Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Thank you for the opportunity to feel part of the world. Thanks for the feeling of life, for the opportunity to see new pictures for me, which are ever imprinted in my memory. Thank you to the wonderful team, these sincere people. To the beauty of the ship. For so much emotion!

Ustiniya Smolievskaya Friday, October 18, 2019

We cruised the Ionian Sea in September 2019.
This was our first such experience. And obviously not the last! This travel exceeded our expectations. Chic sailing ship with a great crew.The cook deserves special praise - the cuisine was excellent.
Comfortable and cozy cabins, beautifully designed interior of the ship.
Thoughtful and interesting route. During the cruise, we visited many picturesque and romantic beaches, some of which are not accessible from land. We visited several interesting islands and ports, which are not crowded with tourists and where large cruise ships do not go.
We had a great time. Definitely - I recommend!

Fedor Kartashov Friday, October 4, 2019

Wir waren in diesem Jahr (September 2019) bereits zum zweiten Mal auf diesem wunderschönen Segelschiff. Sehr schöne und saubere Kabine Nr. 4. Die ganze Crew war sehr höflich und zuvorkommend und bemüht jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen. Die beiden Bartender Igor und Alex ahnten fast jeden Wunsch und bedienten jeden Gast mit immer souveränem Lächeln. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die große Professionalität und hohe Kompetenz von Cruise Direktorin Claudia und Hotelmanager Robert, die die Reise mit dem letzten i Tüpfelchen versahen. Die Küche an Bord war auf hohem Niveau und die zu den Mahlzeiten gereichten Weine immer passend und von guter Qualität. So fehlte beim Kapitäns Dinner auch kein Champagner (Moet et Chandon ice) und der Lobster war fantastisch.
Die Kleidung und die Atmosphäre waren sportlich leger .
Sehr toll war die Möglichkeit von der Badeplattform aus das Meer zu genießen oder mit dem Tenderboot einen ruhigen und schönen Badestrand zu erreichen.
Alles in allem ein unvergesslicher Urlaub.
Für das nächste Jahr haben wir schon wieder gebucht!

I sailed in September 2019 on the RUNNING ON WAVES on a Golf theme cruise from Athens to Crete. I was totally impressed by the service & space on board. The food is extraordinary, always a great variety with first class quality and made with love. All the staff, but mainly Hotel Manager Robert & Cruise Director Claudia made sure we had the best time and an unforgettable trip, they are extremely friendly and helpful. The ship is so spacious and elegant and everything gives you the feeling of being on a private yacht - amazing! A relaxing holiday & wonderful experience - highly recommended!

Isabell Wagner Thursday, September 26, 2019

I had the cruise on the Ionian island in September 2019 on the Ionian Sea and must confess that before I board the boat I did not really know what to expect. This was my first experience in a cruise liner and also my first summer in Greece (it will not be the last for sure) and even though I had received very good reviews of the cruise from my experienced travel agent, a boat enthusiast I sincerely did not know what to expect.
Now, I must admit that all my expectations and more were met. The managers of the cruise, Claudia and Robert, did an excellent job keeping us busy but at the same time providing the gusts with enough flexibility to enjoy our time both on board and during the inland trips. They were incredible friendly and helpful not missing a single opportunity to make our stay unforgettable.
The crew members were also very friendly, skilled and patient with us and greatly contributed to the enjoyment of the experience while the food and dinning/bar services were first class. We were just 30 guests being the boat full but we all had the feeling that the boat was ours. It is a unique experience because there simply few sail cruise boats available and the boat itself is a magnificent piece of marine art engineering.
For me, it was a most memorable experience personal experience . I would not hesitate a second to repeat it in the future again.

Luis Gomez Orodea Thursday, September 19, 2019

When we stepped on board, every detail thereafter was simply superior.  The Captain, and all of the staff were completely professional, courteous and on point.  The condition of the boat was super, and the food was terrific.  This was our second charter and a major one for me because I was hosting my entire direct family at my expense, so the pressure was on.  By the end of the week, I had twenty-seven people telling me that it had been the single best vacation week of their lives.  I cannot commend you, Robert and the amazing boat staff enough.  We are seriously considering scheduling another trip.  Honestly, we have been all over the world, and this was a world-class experience.

Charter Guest Sunday, June 2, 2019

As if playing a game of pebbles skipping on the water, RUNNING ON WAVES sailed us across the blue waters of the Cyclades, island to island, for seven memorable days. Effortlessly gliding across the gleaming Aegean, iconic winged sails fluttering in the wind, the Aegean sirens beckoned us, like in a modern Odyssey, to drink life to the lees. With spirits yearning to soar away from common duties, we abandoned ourselves to a most capable and trustworthy crew for an unforgettable experience. The comfort of the facilities, the friendly staff always ready to respond to our needs, the excellent food by a creative chef, the well-organised activities, our forays with the ship's tender to alluring, secluded beaches and not least our beautiful evenings sipping drinks on the deck at sunset, make us highly recommend this sea adventure! Punctual, attentive to all safety aspects, we can say without reservation that our island-hopping on RUNNING ON WAVES will stay forever in our cache of cherished memories.

RUNNING ON WAVES - is a romantic novel by Alexander Grin in atmosphere of which I had a chance to be - on board the mega yacht RUNNING ON WAVES in the Meditteranean sea. I am an artist who folows the idea - "Beauty is a way to the Truth, the Truth is the God". Perceiving beauty we come closer to the God, we become better and more perfect. The yacht and the air on her has become for me this beauty and a way to the Absolute changing us to the better. Everything on board the yacht says about great love in was built with - golden cut of her forms, interior design, smart technologies... The feeling of beauty and harmony didn't leave me day and night, filling with energy and inspiration.. Nature, RUNNING ON WAVES, the Sun, the Saa and the Stars - everything merged in one vibration, music of harmony and beauty.. The main idea of Alexander Grin's novel is that love and kindness will definetely win. So in our every day life, complicated and sometimes cruel, the journey on RUNNING ON WAVES will help making us kinder and better. Big gratitude to Rouben Khokhryakov, the creator of such beauty, the crew which loves the ship and passengers keeping watch in the sea of Love and Harmony.

Patti Malloy Monday, July 11, 2016

Das Schiff ist in einem Top-Zustand, modernste Technik kombiniert mit Segelnostalgie. Die ganze Mannschaft lässt sich über "die Schulter" schauen. Der Aufenthalt auf der Brücke ist immer spannend. Alle Räume sind klimatisiert.

Das Schiff hat nur Außenkabinen, wir konnten alle Kabinen besichtigen. Die Kabinen im Tween Deck sind alle ok. Sie sind für einen Segler unerwartet geräumig und unterscheiden sich nur bei der Bettenanordnung, Einzelbetten oder Franz. Betten. Es gibt keine "Verlierer". Die Kabinen auf dem Main Deck sind natürlich außerordentlich luxuriöse und lassen keine Wünsche offen. Nachteil allerdings der relativ kräftige Aufpreis, der allerdings aufgrund der Größe und Ausstattung gerechtfertigt ist. Interessant, dass Radar, Schiffsroute, Außenkamera auf dem Mast und unter Wasserkamera vom Kabinenfernseher beobachtet werden können.

Die Küche des Schiffes ist außerordentlich vielfältig, Ideenreich, Mediterrane. Sonderwünsche sind kein Problem. Der Koch ein Künstler. Der Service außerordentlich aufmerksam. Die Getränkepreise sind angemessen, bzw. günstig, geht man von dem üblichen Niveau der Kreuzfahrtschiffe aus, die diese Qualität allerdings nicht erreichen. Trinkgeldpauschale von € 8 p.P. und Tag liegt auch unter dem üblichen Niveau.

Die gesamte Mannschaft ist sehr entgegenkommend, die Stewards für die Kabinenreinigung aufmerksam und gründlich. Hier geht allerdings die Kommunikation nur über Englisch.

rogrammbedingt nicht optimal möglich, aber man bemühte sich sehr. Wetterbedingt (Wellengang) war zum Ende der Reise nicht mehr möglich, die Badeplattform einzusetzen. Der Pool fällt sehr klein aus; ab der 3. Person wird es eng. Aber gehört eigentlich nicht zur Ausstattung eines Seglers.

Die angebotenen Landausflüge waren informativ und preisgerecht.

Sicherheitshalber ist die Mitnahme von Reisetabletten (Übelkeit und Durchfall) zu empfehlen. Wir hatten allerdings keine Probleme, aber es beruhigt.

von Klaus F Sunday, August 16, 2015

Das Schiff wurde 2011 gebaut und ist in einem sehr gepflegten und sauberen Zustand und daran wird täglich gearbeitet. Auf dem Sonnendeck gibt es einen Whirlpool. Aus Platzgründen gibt es nicht für jeden Passagier eine Sonnenliege. Die Kleiderordnung ist leger, zum Abendessen die Herren bitte lange Hosen anziehen. Das Alter der Gäste war von 19 - ca. 65 Jahre, also sehr gemischt, der Durchschnitt lag aber tätsächlich so in der Mitte.

Die Premiumkabinen bieten etwas mehr Platz sind ansonsten den anderen Kabinen sehr ähnlich. Außerdem sind die Premiumkabinen auf dem Hauptdeck. Alle Kabinen hatten ein Flat-TV und einen Safe. Die Badezimmer sind alle gleich klein, aber okay. Der Fön ist außerhalb des Badezimmers, was sehr angenehm ist, da in der Kabine etwas mehr Bewegungsfreiheit herrscht. Die Premiumkabinen sind leise, Geräusche aus Nachbarkabinen hört man nicht. Wenn Segel gesetzt werden hört man dieses etwas und das Geräusch des Generators hört man ständig, dies ist aber nicht unangenehm.

Es gibt einen Salon, der gleichzeitig als Restaurant und Bar fungiert. Dieser ist gemütlich eingerichtet. Das Essen war sehr lecker und dank des griechischen Koches immer wieder griechisch inspiriert, was bei einer Reise durch die griechische Ägäis logisch war. Die Auswahl war nicht groß, aber es war immer für jeden etwas Gutes dabei. Salat und Früchte waren immer dabei.

Die komplette Crew war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Fast alle Mitglieder sprachen etwas Deutsch und/oder Englisch, Die Kabinenreinigung erfolgte morgens und abends und alles war sehr sauber.

Auf dem Sonnendeck gibt es einen Whilpool. Wenn wir vor Anker lagen und der Wind es erlaubte, konnte das Schiff am Heck geöffnet werden und von dort gab es die Möglichkeit zu Schwimmen, zu paddeln etc. von dort fuhr das Tenderschiff ab, welches den Transfer an Land übernahm.

1) ein wirklich sehr schönes Schiff;
2) komfortabel eingerichtet, trotzdem "urwüchsiger" Clippercharakter des 19. Jh.;
3) sehr gute, erfahrene und kommunikative/englischsprachige Mannschaft an Bord, zudem ein Super-Koch mit hoher Kreativität;
4) sehr geschmackvoll und zweckmäßig eingerichtete (Premium-)Kabinen;
5) sehr interessante Segelroute durch die griechischen Kykladen;
6) für Gäste alles sehr entspannt organisiert, Freizeitkleidung angesagt, kein Kleiderzwang wie auf "Kreuzfahrtschiffen;
7) entsprechend relaxte, niveauvolle Gästestruktur;
8) WLAN an Bord gibt einem das Gefühl kommunikativ/informativ mit "Außenwelt" verbunden zu sein (wenn man will); ebenso das TV-Programm mit internationalen und wichtigsten deutschen Sendern;
9) einfach Klasse mit einem wirklich sehr guten Küchenchef!

Hans-Jürgen Thursday, July 2, 2015

das Segelschiff ist in einem Top-Zustand. Gepflegt und sauber von oben bis in den Maschinenraum. Die Ausstattung ist modern und funktionell, die Inneneinrichtung in ansprechenden maritimen Farben. Das Schiff entspricht genau den Beschreibungen des Reiseanbieters Bow Line, d.h. das Schiff ist hat nicht das Freizeitangebot großer Kreuzliner. Dies ist aus Platzgründen nicht möglich und auch nicht gewollt. Und für den Passagier, der Ruhe und das Naturerlbnis sucht, wunderbar. Zahlung an Bord mittels Kreditkarte, Trinkgeld mit 8 Euro pro Person/Tag auf jeden Fall nicht zuviel. Behindertengerecht in das Schiff nicht und auch nicht kindertauglich - wie jede Segelyacht.

Wir bewohnten eine Außenkabine auf dem Hauptdeck, die schön groß (12 qm) war und ein durchdachtes Bad bietete. Kabinenausstattung aus dunklem Holz, top gepflegt, mit Kühlschrank, Safe, Telefon Flat Sreen TV. Das Bad mit Fön (in der Kabine) Dusche, Bademäntel - und Schuhe. Der Wechsel der Wäsche erfolgte nach Gastvorgabe (Handtücher).

Im Salon / Bar ging es leger gepflegt zu. Freundliches Bedienungspersonal, sehr ausreichende Portionen schmackhaften Essens, immer frische Stoffservietten und Tischwäsche. Der Küchenstil der Region angepasst (Griechisch-mediterran). Die Getränkepreise waren sehr moderat (bis auf Mineralwasser)

Der Kapitän und die ganze Mannschaft waren jederzeit um das Gästewohl bemüht. Es wurden Ausfahrten mit dem Schnellboot rund ums Schiff angeboten, für die Badeplattform war es einfach zu kühl und windig. Mastklettern, Knoten knüpfen, Cocktails mixen und Handtücher falten wurde angeboten. Mehr wäre auch für uns zuviel gewesen.

Birgit , Wunderbare Reise Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Jeder, aber auch wirklich jeder auf dem Schiff hat alles getan, um uns den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen. Angefangen vom frühen Kaffee vor dem Frühstück bis zum späten Absacker, alle Wünsche wurden prompt erfüllt. Jeder vom Service-Personal sprach englisch, manche auch ein paar Worte deutsch. Dann war da noch die Reisebegleiterin von BOW LINE REISEN aus Bremen, die immer ansprechbar war, übersetzt hat, wenn mal einer nicht alles verstanden hat. Der Kapitän und die Offiziere haben alles für uns geöffnet: die Brücke, Aussen-Steuerstand, Rettungsboote, sogar den Maschinenraum sowie alle anderen "unterirdischen" Räume wie die Wäscherei, Werkstatt, Kühl- und Lagerräume etc. Und in der Küche hat man gerne für Fotos mit uns posiert. Kabinenreinigung war 2 x pro Tag, Handtuch und Bettwäschewechsel bei Bedarf. Bademäntel wurden ebenso zur Verfügung gestellt. Der Check-In verlief zügig, das Taxi setze uns vor dem Schiff ab, unser Gepäck wurde an Bord getragen und bei einem Snack und einem Glas Sekt gingen die Formalitäten schnell voran. Jeder bekam seine Bordkarte an einem Schlüsselband sowie seinen persönlichen Internet Code für gratis WLAN, eben Urlaub ab der 1. Sekunde.

Kein klassisches Kreuzfahrt-Programm, aber das würde hier auch nicht passen. Yoga wurde angeboten, und dann sehr seemännische Sachen wie Knoten knüpfen, Mastklettern, Segel setzen und selbst der Kapitän überließ mal für eine Minute sein Ruder einem Passagier. Drinks mixen, Handtuchtiere und Servietten falten, selbst Kuchenbacken konnte man mitmachen. Einen Pool gibt es nicht, aber auf dem Oberdeck einen kleinen Wirlpool und gut gepolsterte Sonnenliegen. Abends gab es mal einen Film, aber da wir oft bis Mitternacht, manchmal sogar bis zum fühen Morgen in den Häfen lagen, waren wir dann noch in den Tavernen und Kneipen unterwegs. Etwas, das man so auf einem großen Schiff nicht erlebt

Schon die Betreuung vor Reiseantritt war sehr aufmerksam und zuverlässig (Flug Bahnfahrt) Abholung am Flughafen sehr edel Mercedes Vito. An Bord das große Staunen der Segler wie aus dem Ei gepellt.

An Deck 16 schöne Liegen und Wirlpool. Zum Baden wurde das Heck aufgeklappt , alles war möglich.Jeder der wollte konnte in den Mast klettern angeseilt oder jederzeit den Käpitän besuchen und Fragen stellen. Das Schiff war so sauber als wenn es erst neu in Dienst gestellt ist . Immer wurde geputzt und geputzt.Wir die schon auf vielen Schiffen waren geben die Note 1 Als wir am Sonntag den 31.5. von Bord gingen hat uns fast die ganze Besatzung umarmt und wir haben vor Freude geheult.

Die RUNNING ON WAVES ist ein modernes Segelschiff. Mit 42 Passagieren zählt es zu den besonders kleinen Schiffen. Alles in bestem Zustand und sehr ansprechend eingerichtet. Gemütlich und mit allem, was man braucht. Ich hatte eine Kabine auf dem unteren Deck mit Bullauge. Hier ist der Schrankraum angemessen. Wer mehr Gepäck hat, sollte eine Reisetasche mitnehmen und den Stauraum unter dem Bett nutzen. Sehr sauber. Perfekt! Iannis ist der Chefkoch und immer auch auf Sonderwünsche eingegangen. Es gab von jeder griechischen Insel Spezialitäten. Zum Filmabend kam er spontan mit Popcorn - das beste das ich je gegessen habe!

Ein Segelschiff für Max. 40 Gäste mit dem Komfort einer luxoriösen Yacht. Sehr zuvorkommende und persönliche Betreuung. Hervorragendes Essen. Gut organisierte Ausflüge mit kompetenten Reiseführerinnen. Aktive Unterhaltung an Bord, aber keine Shows etc. Das würde auch nicht zum Schiff passen. Gäste unterschiedlichen Alters, jedoch keine Kinder. Die aber hätten ab einem Alter von etwa zehn Jahren auch ihren Spaß gehabt. Für Behinderte allerdings wegen zahlreicher Treppen und hoher Schwellen nicht geeignet.

Ich kann mich den vorherigen Bewertungen uneingeschränkt anschließen. Das Schiff hat für einen Segler eine tolle Ausstattung, leider fehlt etwas Stauraum, also besser etwas weniger einpacken Die legere Kleiderordnung war für alle Gäste sehr angenehm. Die RUNNING ON WAVES ist in einem ausgezeichneten, sehr gepflegten Zustand; Das Essen ist hervorragend - alle Wünsche wurden unverzüglich erfüllt; Getränkepreise moderat Gästestruktur sehr gemischt

Bei dem Schiff handelt es sich um einen modernen, luxuriösen Dreimaster der gut im Wind liegt und die Wellen durchschneidet. Selbst mit wenig Wind kann die RUNNING ON WAVES unter Segeln fahren, so dass man das Segelfeeling auch richtig spürt. Der Fahrplan ist auch nicht so eng gestrickt, dass man bei jeder Flaute zwangsläufig gleich den Motor anschmeißen muss. Die Besatzung ist sehr freundlich und kompetänt. Sie beantwortet gerne zu jeder Zeit alle Fragen rund ums Schiff, Nautik, Route ... Sogar kleine Masterclasses wie z.B. Knotenkunde, Segelsetzen, Mastklettern usw. wurden während der Fahrt angeboten. Wir hatten bei unserer fährt "Quer durch die Ägäis" 200MB pro Tag und Person WLan zur Verfügung, aber nur wenn man griechisches Handynetz empfangen hat. Wasser, Tee, Kaffee und kleinere Snacks stehen jederzeit kostenlos zur Verfügung. Bei uns war die Gästestruktur sehr durchmischt, von Mitte 20 bis ü70 war alles dabei gewesen. Trinkgelder werden mit 8€ am Tag empfohlen, aber können problemlos nach Bedarf in beide Richtungen angepasst werden. Das Schiff können wir mit guten Gewissen an Paar- und Einzelreisende weiterempfehlen.

Dear Crew, From the captain and his engineering team who kept the beautiful boat running so smoothly; to housekeeping who tirelessly ensured our rooms were cleaned to a high standard daily; to the wonderfully attentive restaurant staff; the patient and able boys who took us ashore on the tender each day; to our fabulous cruise director.
